Re: From SNE to Researcher in psychiatry

In treatment resistant depression I think anti self-alienation measures can help. Reconnecting with oneself ... and therefore with life and with others. Mindfulness, self-compassion, approaching fears instead of avoiding them ... anything that walks back our ingrained deadening self-alienation.

The chemical factors involved I wouldn't know. I almost hesitate to say the simple and obvious ACTIVITY ... both physical and mental is a piece, as in physical exercise and mental work. The plying of our aptitudes is fundamental and usually enlivening.

Just some thoughts. But anything that walks back the numbing, deadening, impoverishing experience of self-alienation can be a useful tack.
